Quote of the Day

“I cannot believe any official or citizen can still defend the notion that an unborn human being has no rights that an older person is bound to respect. I do know that we cannot go on forever feigning agnosticism about who is human.  As Thomas Jefferson wrote, ‘The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.’  The freedom to choose is pointless for someone who does not have the freedom to live.  So the right of ‘choice’ of one human being cannot trump the right to ‘life’ of another.  How long can we sustain our commitment to freedom if we continue to deny the very foundation of freedom—life—for the most vulnerable human beings?”

Paul Ryan, September 2010
